Shehzad taken to hospital after being injured

ABU DHABI: Ahmed Shehzad has been taken to hospital after a bouncer by fast bowler Corey Anderson hit him on the side of his head while his bat struck the stumps for a hit wicket dismissal, earlier today.

He made a career-best 176 before falling to the ground after he was hit by Anderson's unruly delivery as Pakistan reached a daunting 347-2 at lunch on the second day of the first Test against New Zealand.

Dazed by the blow, he fell to the ground before walking off.

Before the bizarre dismissal Shehzad had been shaping well, with 17 boundaries and a six in his 371-ball innings.

By break time Azhar Ali was unbeaten on 73 and Younis Khan had still to get off the mark. Pakistan added 78 in the morning session after resuming on 269-1. Shehzad and Ali had put on 169 for the second wicket.

New Zealand's bowlers once again toiled hard on an unresponsive pitch, with Anderson the only wicket-taker in the match so far with 2-46.

The New Zealanders paid dearly for giving Shehzad a life on Sunday.  He was on 16 when wicket-keeper B.J. Watling failed to stump him off the bowling of spinner Mark Craig.

Shehzad, 126 overnight, took some time to open up on Monday. But he then hit a straight six off Craig before running a three to surpass his previous best of 147 against Sri Lanka in Sharjah earlier this year.

Pakistan, who won the toss and opted to bat, lost just one wicket on Sunday, that of opener Mohammad Hafeez for 96.

The remaining two Tests will be played in Dubai (November 17-21) and Sharjah (November 26-30). – AFP
